Chicago is a city that loves its sports, as well as one with a respected reputation for comfort food and drinks. Combining these two things, it comes as no surprise that the city is just about the best place in America to find a great sports bar. There are in fact dozens of noteworthy places to catch a game, have a few drinks, and enjoy some classic game food. Among them though, some stand out as particularly great options. Here is our list of the top sports bars in Chicago.

St Patrick's Day. If you are not from Chicago the first thing you're thinking is probably something like this: Irish inspired holiday, leprechauns, a Catholic saint named Patrick, green, people drinking booze. Yes, that's what Chicagoans think too but here's the thing. St Patrick's Day in Chicago is more like an event. An ALL DAY CITY EVENT.
Anyone who has walked or passed downtown Chicago know that the Saturday of or before the actual official holiday (and yes in Chicago we considered it a holiday), millions of Chicagoans, midwesterners, even people from the east coast, west coast and people from all over the world come to Chicago to celebrate this special day.
Meet People Chicago have many happy hour events and we have accumulated much knowledge about what makes a good happy hour in this great city of ours. So we decided to help people out who are new to the Chicago happy hour scene.

What is a Happy Hour?
Imagine that a few hours in the evening, around when most people get off work, drinks and food at your favorite bar were cheaper. Maybe you and a couple co-workers or friends could get together and relax after a stressful day at work during the weekday. Wouldn’t that be awesome? If only this idea was a reality. *sigh*
Oh wait, it is, and it’s called a “Happy Hour”.

It was Saturday morning & I had nothing better to do for the weekend. Apart from being bored, I needed a new story to write for my blog.
Socializing events are a great source of my inspiration & are filled with interesting stories. So I Immediately checked if MeetPeopleChicago has any good events? I immediately signed up when I saw that there was bar crawl.
I love bar crawls, they are a great way to socialize, get drunk and meet amazing people. Peter never let people down with bar selections and drink specials.
I was all Dressed Up To Get Messed Up!!!
It was 90º on a Saturday afternoon & I started binge drinking at 4:00 pm, hey it’s five o’clock somewhere & you can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning!
